Teeth Whitening

Overland Park Teeth Whitening

Most teeth are rarely ever naturally white. As a result, it is up to teeth whitening products and cosmetic dentistry to achieve those results. At our dental office in Overland Park, we can complete several options of professional teeth whitening. You can expect your teeth to whiten up to 8 shades lighter with our professional treatment. If you are wondering about over the counter whitening products, do not waste your money. Those products may deliver you a shade or two of whiter teeth; however, you will never achieve the same great results that we offer. Visit KC Smile for teeth whitening and also other cosmetic dentistry options.

Professional Teeth Whitening Procedure

Teeth whitening is a simple procedure and most patients are candidates. First, as long as you are free of periodontal or gum diseases and are not pregnant, you are most likely a candidate. Most noteworthy, dental crowns, veneers, and dental bridges cannot be whitened. We offer three products at our dental practice for you to choose from. Each product is a take-home kit. As a result, you can whiten on your time in the comfort of your home. After a brief visit with Dr. Headley, your cosmetic dentist, you will decide which option is right for you.

Opalescence® PF Tooth Whitening

Opalescence PF is a great option for patients who want to whiten their teeth, but also have sensitive teeth. It is available in both mint and melon flavors with a peroxide content of 20%. In addition, it also contains potassium nitrate and fluoride to help prevent cavities and improve the hardness of your enamel. This treatment consists of a whitening gel placed in a tray that sits in your mouth for the required time.

NiteWhite® Overnight Teeth Whitening

If you would rather whiten your teeth while you sleep, NiteWhite is the option for you. It contains 16% carbamide peroxide. In addition, NiteWhite is similar to Opalescence in that a tray is filled with a whitening solution. You will pop the trays in when you go to sleep and wake up with whiter teeth, that’s a fact.

Sheer White® Whitening Strips

Sheer White whitening strips are similar to those that you buy in stores, however; they deliver the whitening results of professional treatment. The strips are simply placed over dry teeth and kept on for the instructed time. The strips stick perfectly to the teeth and create a leak-proof seal for even whitening. The whitening strips also contain 20% carbamide peroxide.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the many cosmetic dentistry treatments we have available at our dental office. There are some patients who do not respond to whitening treatment. As a result, we recommend those patients opt for porcelain veneers or dental crowns instead. The patients who do complete tooth whitening, however, are beyond happy with the results. In addition, one of the main benefits is an increase in confidence and self-esteem. After your teeth are whitened, you will feel the need to keep your teeth white by brushing and flossing more regularly. You can also maintain your smile by enjoying naturally whitening foods. In addition, you will see us for regular cleanings. Therefore, your dental health will improve as a result. Experience the many benefits of teeth whitening.
